“I’m not moving this car an inch until you tell me what’s going on!” Mrs. Thompson replied.
“Oh, you see, there really isn’t time! He’s probably seen me already!” Scarlet pleaded with her.

“We’re gonna try my brother’s. In Nebraska. That should be far enough, right?” Holden’s hair was plastered to his sweaty forehead.
“Thank you for running with me.”

“Josiah. Haven’t talk to him in years, either. We all sorta spread out all over after high school.”
“Here goes.”
